Gabbard to get start

The Boston Globe is reporting that Tim Wakefield will go on the DL with a fractured rib retroactive to July 18, and Pawtucket lefty Kason Gabbard will get the spot start in Wakefield's absence. Previously this season, the 24-year old southpaw dominated the competition in AA Porltand, going 9-2 with a 2.57 ERA in 13 starts, but struggled somewhat after a promotion to Pawtucket, where he has gone 1-3 with a 4.97 ERA in 5 starts. In other Red Sox news, Josh Beckett signed a three year contract extension. Terms were not disclosed.
